Joomla 2.5 has reached its end of life as for 12/31/2014. Please be advised this may be a security risk to your website. You can view more information about the end of life here.

In this tutorial, we will walk you through the steps of creating a new menu in Joomla 2.5. If you don't have any previous experience with Joomla 2.5 menus, we suggest taking a look first at An Introduction to Joomla 2.5 Menus.

To create a Joomla 2.5 menu:

  1. Log into your Joomla Dashboard
  2. In the top menu under Menus, click Menu Manager
  3. Click the New button in the top right menu
  4. Type in a menu title, type, and description. Then click Save & Close in the top right menu
  5. Find and click Add a module for this menu type next to the menu you just created
  6. Type in a Title, choose a Position for the menu, and then click Save & Close

At this point, we have successfully created a new Joomla Menu. The menu is not going to show on our Joomla 2.5 site until we first add a menu item to it. For information on changing the display order of the menus, see our guide on Joomla Menu Re-Ordering
